Michele Kortbawi Wilk's Solo Exhibition. Wilk is a self-taught artist, apart from art classes during her early years, who began drawing and painting when she was very young. Her love for art is equally shared with a love for all animals. In her young adulthood, Michele’s passion for animals landed her a job in Southern California working with animals for the motion picture industry. where she was informed first and foremost whilst working alongside exotic, native and domestic animals in the film industry.

Gallery 1261
A sneak peek of Luminalia, a solo exhibition by Mia Bergeron. "Flames have been used historically throughout the world to signify the passing of time. We light candles for birthdays, for prayers, for deaths. One candle can light many, an inspiring symbol most appropriate to start a new year. Flames can symbolize rejuvenation, cleansing, thoughtfulness, silence, and the passing to another chapter. When this iconic element is set in surprising visual contexts, the narrative for this ancient symbol becomes more nuanced than original associations would have led us to think about something as simple as light and heat". -Mia Bergeron  View online

David B. Smith Gallery
Opening receptions, 6-8pm
Leon Benn, Nurse Logs and Rolling Aura, a solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based artist Liz Nielsen. With one eye fixed on the primordial forest floor and the other trained at a horizon on fire, in Nurse Logs, Leon Benn tempers the harsh realities of our times with his ecstatic chromatic vision. References to 17th century European Sottobosco still life tradition, nods to often overlooked ecological environs, and Benn’s good-natured sense of humor are woven throughout his canvases. Benn’s playful curiosity is immediately evident, as he guides the viewer through a historical journey that begins on a dark forest walk, leading into the cold light of day.

Presented in the gallery’s project room, Rolling Aura features an array of framed analog photograms that are iconic to Nielsen’s signature style. Created using a light exposure process wherein Nielsen arranges compositions over light sensitive paper which are exposed 10 to 50 times per work, embedded throughout the photo emulsion are the fortuitous traces of color and movement. Appearing as a snippet in time, Nielsen’s glowing landscapes speak to a state of being that is ever-changing.
Through February 26

Visions West Contemporary

A group exhibition, Counter Cowboy. This unique perspective of the "Wild West" features the work of Shae Bishop, Patty Carroll, June Glasson, Grace Kennison, Clayton Porter, and David Rathman, among others. Counter Cowboy aims to explore the often untold and forgotten history of the American West. Debunking the longstanding story of the west, the show tells of the many different experiences hidden below the stereotypes we are most familiar with. The American West is wonderfully diverse and Counter Cowboy aims to explore the many perspectives that are alive in the West.

Walker Fine Art
Matter of Time, a group exhibition featuring: Kim Ferrer, Julie Anderson, Doug Hauessner, Peter Illig, Karin Schminke, and Mark Penner-Howell. Time is simultaneously an intangible concept and the governing factor of all tangible phenomena. It is a universal construct that has been exhibited in every culture and language throughout history, yet seemingly impossible to grasp. While experiencing another person's perception of time is certainly unattainable, these 6 six artists featured in FLUIDITY OF TIME attempt to share their perceptions of their reality. Through painting, sculpture, photography & mixed media, these artists address the complex, nonlinear sequence of how time is perceived, measured, and experienced. View online

Visions West Contemporary
Johnny DeFeo presents an exhibition of new paintings with subject matter ranging from landscape, interior scenes from his Department of the Interior series, as well as fantastic and dreamlike paintings of animals. These paintings depict moments of romance and chaos in America's wild spaces; two fawns sharing a quiet moment beneath a tree at sunrise, a herd of wild horses running across the plains in a lightning storm. These paintings evoke a sense of fantasy and drama and attempt to go beyond the conventions of traditional wildlife painting to reveal the terror, beauty and complexity of the living world.

Canaries
, a solo exhibition by Brian Mashburn. "Canaries is a series of new oil paintings featuring a variety of relatively common birds, at least familiar to me here in the North Carolina mountains. Except for the Kestrel, all of the birds depicted were observed and photographed from my studio window. Convenience aside, painting what some may call everyday birds is an opportunity to pay close attention to and garner new appreciation for commonplace encounters - which in my opinion, is the essence of birdwatching" - Brian Mashburn

The McKenney-Hall Indian Gallery.
Thomas McKenney was appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs in 1916 by President James Madison. He championed Native American causes for the next several decades at a time when tribal culture was often on a collision course with land-hungry whites and the U.S. Government. McKenney worked tirelessly on his Indian Gallery, a collection of artifacts and portraits of the visiting Indians by the famous painter Charles Bird King. However, in 1830, McKenney was dismissed by President Jackson -- they had quarreled about the removal of the Cherokee from their homeland. McKinley had also battled with a Congressional committee investigating his expenditure of $3,100 for the Indian portraits. Therefore, it was on his own that he launched a project to publish a series of large portfolios with hand-colored lithographs made after King's original paintings. More information

Holiday Show: Over the River and Through the Woods. Become lost in the woods this holiday season and enter the world of contemporary naturalism. Lydia Maria Child’s holiday poem “Over the River and Through the Wood” fills the imagination with images of the festivity found in nature as the narrator journeys through the forest. This multi-generational narrative of the holiday pilgrimage has developed its own meaning in the English lexicon; and “Over the river and through the wood” is now an idiom for becoming “lost”.

Soft Eye, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Johnny Defeo. Statement: "Not too long ago I bought a horse, Cowboy, he's in this show. I purchased him from an online
horse auction, which I was told both before and since is a highly unwise thing to do. You barely
get any information about the horses at these auctions-- at best, a brief description of their
physical condition, temperament, and a guess at how old they might be. But I felt confident
choosing Cowboy because there was a moment in the short video accompanying his
description and lot number where he looked right into the camera, and I could see that he was a
sweet boy. I later learned that there's a term for that look, it's called having a 'soft eye,' and it's a
very good thing to have in a horse. So too, I'd imagine, in all creatures living on this wild planet.
Looking at the world through soft eyes implies a level of patience and care, allowing one to
notice the diaphanous subtleties which escape so many. It can be easy to miss in the chaos we
create"

Fresh Perspectives featuring: Ellen Moershel, Malcolm Easton, Lauren Karnitz, Aaron Morgan Brown, Derrick Breidenthal, and Brandon Reese. Artists use perspective techniques to create a realistic impression of depth, while humans in general use perspective to create their individual realities. The way you interpret the world around you, as well as the artwork you view, is all influenced by perspective. By contemplating the multi-faceted meaning of perspective, the six artists in this group exhibition showcase their navigations through a variety of mediums. Approaching these notions from micro or macro lenses, each artist questions and portrays their individual meanings of space, home, environment and what it all means to them in Fresh Perspectives.
